Promotion of Participation and Citizenship in Europe through the "Advocacy and Legal Advice Centres (ALACs)" of Transparency International
 
Abstract:
With the focus on the Advocacy and Legal Advice Centres (ALACs) of Transparency International (TI), the leading CSO against corruption, the project objectives were: enhancing civil society participation raising anti-corruption effectiveness, and developing the advocacy for legal change at the national and EU level. Based on the insight that citizens participation and the values of integrity, accountability and transparency were crucial components of fighting corruption the project was designed to promote the ALACs both as a management tool of a bottom-up anti-corruption work and citizens participation mechanism. Combining action-research and practical implementation the project was designed as a process of organizational learning intended to have direct impact on the work of Transparency International and its partner organizations in Europe and all over the world.
